RE: Who can help me pick out a 600 watt solar sytem?

You may want to check Home Depot. Renogy Edit add I see others suggesting a 400 watt kit and adding two panels. Others can likely answer this but the 400 watt kit may have lighter wiring than the 600. Not sure, but the 50% increase in power may force you to also add new wire.

RE: Can we pull a TT with our ‘20 Suburban

With a family of 5 plus a large dog, your issue is likely to be cargo capacity more so than tow cap. There should be a door column sticker listing your cargo cap, add up weights of family and in vehicle cargo. Add 100 lbs for a weight dist hitch and then see how much room you have left. That's what you have available for tongue weight. Tongue weight should be about 12% to 15% of your total trailer weight, so as an example if you had 800 lbs available for tongue weight, your trailer loaded for travel should weigh no more than 6000 lbs which would require between 720 and 900 lbs of tongue weight. Hope this helps.

RE: Another Tesla problem

In the report you posted "Three weeks after the crash, the owner got a letter from Tesla saying that the accelerator was depressed to 48% just before the crash and 98% at the time of impact. The owner still believes the car accelerated by itself, the complaint stated." They can tell a lot of things going on when the vehicle is operating and I have to think the investigation should not be that hard to do. Call up the vehicles report and show the investgators.Did it fail or did it do what the driver asked it to do? That was one, of multiple cases cited in the report. And the question still stands. And on top of the other potential questions, does towing add another dimension to the issue? Especially since the problem appears to cross all three of their product lines?

Another Tesla problem

Will be interesting to see how "uncontrolled acceleration" works for towing with the pickups. Tesla

RE: Camper title and registration.

Does, and if so, how, does that affect your ability to sell that camper in the future? Just curious what another owner may go through, both in Utah, and out.

RE: Need help replacing charging circuit solenoid.

As Enblethen said, it should be the same as the old standard Ford unit. Go to any auto parts store and ask to see a starter solenoid. You should be readily able to match it.

RE: Ford Increases GVWR for 2020 Trucks

Dont a handfull of states play their socialistic tax games at the 10,000 pound point? So manufacturers play the game too to help folks dodge greedy govt. It's all just posturing and a matter of how much they can take.

RE: Warranty coverage

Warranties are not as comprehensive with the RV industry as they are in automotive. Many dealers only service units they sold, even though technically they can work on others. Brands have varying levels of coverage, and varying degrees of desire to cover their products. A few do seem to have more favorable customer opinions than others. Grand Design owners seem most happy and in varying degrees Winnebago, K-Z, Jayco, and then it falls to the others, Warranty coverage as far as duration can be seen as something of an indicator by some, and in general Jayco, K-Z, some Keystones, Palomino, a few others offer warranty periods longer than one year. Remember, the warranty from the manufacturer is for what they build, appliances, frames, axles, etc are warranted separately by the companies that provided them. Your best chance at a unit with few problems is to do a very thorough walk through BEFORE delivery, and have everything addressed prior to taking possession, when you are in the position of power. Hope this helps.

RE: Advice from current owners on new purchase

As said before, look closely. I have heard some comments , and seen why they were made about some units. Closely check fit of cabinets and materials, Particle board is junk, plywood is better, and for frames, hardwood is better still. More money for the unit often buys more "glitz" NOT more quality. You will usually get more of one OR the other, not always both.

RE: Low cargo carrying capacity rant

But after you load it to its top weight, you can show your neighbors how much extra storage space you have. You cant use it,,,,, but you have it.

RE: RV storage

Check with a couple of local campgrounds, many have an rv storage area for short term or seasonal use.

Proposed new gun law for interstate travel

I know guns are a touchy subject but there is a new proposal starting to make its rounds through the Senate that will at least standardize rules for people who travel state to state. With the states having such a high degree of variance in their rules this may help travellers. Gun bill Edit add, from the senators website. more info on the bill as well as a link to the actual bill. Daines site

RE: Love my Mr Heater Hunting Buddy

And when you tire of the $5 per pound cylinder price try this. cylinder refill the adaptor is available on amazon for less than $10 adaptor And it cuts the cost per cylinder down to about $1 per tank. In winter months I find I dont need to refrigerate the tanks, just setting them outside when the temps are below 50 or so is enough .
